Storage FAQs

What and how much can I store over the summer?

  • You can store up to three items. These items must be sealed in a box or plastic tote and clearly labeled with your name and home address. 

What's not allowed?

  • Furniture such as couches or futons, and appliances such as refrigerators are not allowed.
  • Flammable liquids and other incendiary/hazardous items, food, loose lumber, or anything that's deemed dangerous by college staff at the time of storage.

Where am I allowed to store my possessions during the summer?

  • You must store your possessions in the residence hall where you will be living NEXT year.

Will my possessions be safe?

  • While we have a very good track record in terms of safeguarding your belongings, occasionally items are damaged or lost. Please consider that you are storing these items AT YOUR OWN RISK; the college will not cover repair or replacement costs. Under these circumstances, it makes sense not to store valuables.

Is storage space guaranteed for every resident?

  • Storage space is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis for those who will be residing in the residence halls. If you wait too long it's possible we will run out of space. Planning ahead is always a good idea. Those moving into the TLAs can utilize storage in Swanson only if they live more than 400 miles away.
